Merry & Bright Coffee Card

Hello again today, sweet coffee-loving creative friends!  I'm SO grateful that you are here, and I appreciate you stopping by.  If you are a Superstar Commentor, I applaud you and I am grateful for your words of encouragement.  I have always enjoyed the commenting, and giving each entrant some special words of praise.  This time around, it just won't work out for me to do all the commenting.  I am travelling (more than one trip) during the hop.  I am also SO grateful that Blogger allows us to schedule our blog posts so that we can be organized ahead of time, allowing me to play along.  I'm REALLY crossing my fingers that I will win a prize this year.  
My card was created using some October Afternoon patterned papers and an October Afternoon sentiment strip (Merry and Bright), Dear Santa sticker, Merry flair (button), and holly berry stickers.  The Egg Nog ephemera is Tim Holtz.  The coffee cup is from Stampin' Up, and the ribbons are from May Arts.  I inked all the edges of this card with various Tim Holtz Distress Inks.
The (adorable) stamped sentiment #coffee is from Paper Sweeties sweet stamp set Tackle Life One Cup At A Time.  These hashtag sentiments are SO on trend, so adorable, and can be found in a vast majority of newer stamp sets at Paper Sweeties.  SO on trend, SO cute, yup....LOTS of great coffee themed sets, too!
